I have CASED a card from Mary Fish for today.  She did a beautiful wreath from the new Leaf Punch that is in the Holiday Catalog.  Mary’s wreath was done in metallic colors.  So I decided to try making one with the new Merry Music Specialty DSP.

Leaf Punch, 144667



My card is fairly simple with the exception of the wreath.  I punched ten leaves each from the white and the black pieces of music sheet DSP.  I used my bone folder to gently curl the leaves just a little bit. Then I alternated the colors in laying them down to form the wreath.

The bow is made with the wonderful 1/8″ Real Red Ribbon that is also  new in the Holiday Catalog.  I really love narrow ribbon.  The sentiment is from the Label of Love stamp set in the Holiday Catalog as well.   It is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a strip of Whisper White card stock.  The Memento black ink is my black of choice for most stamping because it does not smear on the whisper white and very vanilla card stock.

HINT:  I punched a 2″ circle of Old Olive card stock and adhered it to the center of the Old Olive panel.  I used that as the guide for laying down my leaves.  I added adhesive just to the outside of that circle.  (Trust me….I had a really ugly non-round wreath before I came up with that idea!)
